Earlier in the year, I bought a blaster and a few packs of 2008 Goudey and liked them very much, especially the retired players like Richie Ashburn and Catfish Hunter. I have been trying to save money as of late (my wife and I are going to Europe this summer!), but I couldn't resist the lure of $11 blasters at the local K-Mart. I bought 1 and got about 50 cards that I didn't have and a few fun inserts and SP's. I thought that with one more blaster I might be able to get a few cards closer to a complete base set. Well, a FEW is exactly how many closer I got! Well, here's to trying to go after a previous year's set while everybody else is going nutty over this year's new models.
I do have a knack for pulling good inserts of non-baseball players though. These are up for trade for anyone who is building the WHOLE set. My "baseball only" want list is to the right.
(With a scanner on loan, I hope to get back into the blogging world. Baseball season is on the horizon! Is it OK that I'm not that excited about the Livan Hernandez on the Mets?)
UPDATE: Hit Parade Gretzky is heading out to Big Nacho!
